News 8.9.2020 Good morning, friends! Well, not a lot has changed since I last posted here four months ago. Covid 19 still rages on; remember back in April when I was hopeful that the theatre scene would return to normal by the end of summer? Oh, the days of youthful bliss and ignorance. Quarantine may have us socially distant, but the virtual theatre scene is still kicking. So many fantastic artists are working tirelessly to make the arts more accessible from the comfort and safety of your own home. I have several "virtual" gigs coming up that you can enjoy while simultaneously helping the art community.
1) Now through August 14th, you can view the July 31st 2020 production of Mayhem at Camp Marigold through The Box Theatre Co. Email email@example.com or call (262) 560-0564
2) Join us via Facebook for a live virtual staged reading of my play Lovers and the Like. August 14th at 7:30 & August 15th at 7:30. This event is free, but donations will gladly be accepted on behalf of myself and the four amazing actors involved (Jessica Kennedy, Josh Scheibe, Octavia Morton, and Melody Lopac)
3) For one week only (September 18th - 27th) you can watch the 2019 production of Freinds 4Ever. Enjoy this kooky family-friendly "murder" mystery from the comfort and safety of your own home. Head on over to The Box Theatre Co. 's page and ask how you can secure your virtual spot.
Theatre looks different these days, but it's still there and us artists are still working hard. Email me directly at DeannaStrasse@gmail.com with any questions.
